Research and Scientific Journal “Electronic Engineering, Series 2, Semiconductor devices” was established in 1958 by the Enterprise “SPE “Pulsar” JSC (former SRI number 35), which remains its main publisher till present day.
Initially the Enterprise was publishing Research and Scientific Collection “Challenges in Radioelectronics, Series 2, Semiconductor Devices” But in 1967 this edition has changed its name and among the professional engineering publications Research and Scientific Collection “Electronic Engineering, Series 2, Semiconductor devices” has been established. That edition represented articles on design and production of microwave semiconductor devices, MMICs, power and photoelectronic devices; topology and circuit design; production techniques, measuring and testing methods; development, production and challenges in the application of solid-state microwave complex functional blocks and radio-electronic modules.
Throughout its existence Journal has been issued twice a year. However, Journal had difficult period in its history, when its publication was put on hold. From 1994 till 2004 Journal “Electronic Engineering, Series 2, Semiconductor devices” was not published. But starting from 2005 publishing was resumed. Nowadays the goal of Journal editorial board is to increase the number of volumes per year.
Since the first issue of a Journal it contains works of leading specialists in Solid-state electronics, papers of young scientists and engineers on the following themes:
- Solid-state microwave electronics and complex devices.
- Power electronics and microelectronics
- New solid-state technology
- Quality and Reliability of solid-state devices
At 2009 Research and Scientific Collection has been reformed into Research and Scientific Journal and it has been given ISSN – 2073-8259. By decision of the Presidium of the Higher Attestation Commission of the Russian Ministry of Science Journal has been included in the Roster of the leading peer-viewed scientific journals and issues, which in accordance with the decision of the Higher Attestation Commission could include basic scientific results of dissertations for the degree of Doctor and Candidate of Sciences. Journal was also included in an informational system “Russian Index of Scientific Citation”.
Nowadays it is possible to subscribe to a Journal in any post office: subscription index in the catalogue of “Publications of Institutions of Research and Scientific Information” of “Rospechat” Agency – 59890.
